Dental implants are one of the most advanced methods to having false teeth and they are used to replace missing teeth. Dental implants feel and look just like natural teeth and that is why patients are opting in for this treatment option. One of the many benefits of this procedure is that other teeth do not need to be altered in the process.
This alternative method uses small titanium posts or titanium implants which are placed into your jawbone where teeth are missing. After the post is placed, your jawbone will bond to it and create a foundation that is very strong. The procedure will take a couple of months to complete as you need to give your jaw time to heal once the posts are in place.
Dr. Chad Barney can identify when dental implants are right for you. He can then refer you to a trained specialist to perform implanting the posts. Once the implant area is completely healed, you will return to our office for restorative work.
Restorative work consists of creating a natural looking and permanent crowns. An impression will be taken to get the accurate size and measure for your crowns. Once the impression has been sent to the lab and your crowns are ready, you will see Dr. Barney again for him to affix them.
Dental implants are beneficial because they help fill in gaps where teeth have been removed and they also help to preserve the shape of your jawbone. Once the procedure is over, you will be excited to smile again and your teeth will feel and look natural.
